Ditto, I have the same problem with my HD380pro. Since last week though I play with Brainwavz M2 IEM's and I have to say that for 37euro I paid (including shipping) they're worth every penny.
 
Good luck!

A bit of a warning when buying neutral headphones. If you expect to be blown away by amazing "in-your-face" live/fun sound from a neutral headphone such as the SRH840 do not be. Expect to hear uncolored, analytical/highly-detailed "as-it-is" sound.

 You should still be able to get a Sennheiser HD555 for $75 net.
These can be modded to a HD595 in 5 minutes.You'll get a $300
HP and have $$ left over for an amp, if needed.
 
  These are openbacked ( leaks in & out), but super comfortable.
The 595 mod provides for more bass.

I believe you open the the two sides up with a small screwdriver and and a flathead and once you do that there will be a sticky foam on the holes. You take it out from both sides and put everything back together and you're done.

to me, mine are very balanced
Q balamnceuote:
Personally I feel the AD700 does fine for most music though I can see why some would say otherwise.  The DT440, DT250, or SRH440 are other options to consider.  M50 could be ok I guess but they aren't very balanced sounding nor what  Id consider good allrounders. Too much bass, recessed mids, etc.

 Search "Soundstage mod for Sennheiser HD-555/595 (remastered)"
in forums. jschristian44 gives good directions for 595 mod (simple removal of
foam) and cutting the grill (soundstage mod).
 
 I'd probably start with the foam removal, as it's reversible.
The cutting is not.
 
 Good luck.
